Environment and Climate Change

SOCODEVI addresses practices, approaches and the socio-economic context in order to improve natural resource management and help protect ecosystems and the environment.

Our Approach

Family Enterprises

Women and men are made aware of and equipped to be able to seize opportunities to protect the environment and adapt to climate change, thereby contributing to improving practices and boosting the resilience of families.

Cooperative Enterprises

Supported organizations integrate environmental protection, as well as combating and adapting to climate change, into their management by developing environmental action plans and institutional tools that promote innovation and environmental performance. Cooperative enterprises benefit from the support SOCODEVI provides towards their professionalization in the areas of environmental compliance and certification processes.


Strategic partnerships are established to enhance local practices that are essential to using natural resources equitably and responsibly, protecting the environment and combatting and adapting to climate change.

SOCODEVI became in 2021 the first Canadian international cooperation organization certified carbon neutral !
